Celebrate ‘The Africa’ We See This Africa Month with DStv

May is Africa month on DStv, with the highlight being the launch of Africa We See campaign, a celebration of Africa, its people, and the rich stories that come from across the continent.

Liz Dziva, publicity and public relations manager of MultiChoice Zimbabwe, said a wealth of African content would be broadcast on a range of DStv channels.

“DStv is proud to serve as a vehicle for the stories of Africa, and although the current crisis demands that everyone physically isolates or distances, people can come together to unite in celebrating what matters the most: resilience, sense of community, creativity and so much more,” she said.

“So we celebrate the distinctively African talent and entertainment offered on our channels, which reflect the stories and lives of our viewers across the continent.”

The channels provide a variety of content and genres, ranging from soap operas, reality shows, drama, comedy, lifestyle programmes, music, and movies.  DStv is home to Mzansi Magic and  Zambezi Magic, which provide enthralling locally-produced content for Southern Africa, including Zimbabwe, while Africa Magic provides viewers with a variety of popular series and movies from Nigeria and other countries across the continent.

The television promo that launches the new campaign features famous faces from across the continent, most of them familiar to DStv audiences, such as the cast of Tinsel, Zambia’s Chimange Chinalula, and Jason Goliath from South Africa, who can often be seen on Comedy Central.

And Zimbabwean viewers are being encouraged to participate in the #AfricaWeSee conversation by sharing messages, pictures and video content in celebration of Africa Month through MultiChoice Zimbabwe’s social media platforms Facebook page; twitter @DStvZimbabwe and Instagram;@dstvzimofficial . More information on DStv can be found at
